Set to run as Caloundra Race 6 at 3:17pm (AEST), this year’s $175,000 Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) field is down to 11 after the early scratching of Ninth Legion who runs at home in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill instead.

Heading the updated Glasshouse Handicap odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.70 for the win is the Darren Weir-trained Group 1 winner Stratum Star.

The Stratum four-year-old comes off a close third at Eagle Farm from June 11 in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m), but goes up from 59kg that run to 61kg on the weekend giving the weight away to his rivals.

So can the smart stallion overcome the kilos or is there value further down the Glasshouse Handicap betting markets for an upset from the likes of the rails-drawn Sacred Star ($5.50), the Robert Heathcote-trained WJ Healy runner-up Saluter ($4.800 or the super-consistent Irish Constabulary ($8.50)?


#5 Saluter ($4.80)

Robert Heathcote’s in-form Brisbane galloper is ticking lots of boxes including his outstanding record at the Sunshine Coast (4-3-0-1). He’s yet to finish out of the money here and won over 1000m at the track with 60kg two back. Ran last Saturday for a second in the Group 3 WJ Healy (1200m), narrowly beaten with 55kg. Well-weighted with 54.5kg this weekend, Brad Stewart retains the ride and he should eat-up the metres having plenty of form over the distance (16-3-4-1).


#2 Sacred Star ($5.50)

Kiwi horseman Tony Pike has enjoyed a couple of Group 1 wins in Brisbane this winter and is looking for another Black-Type on Saturday with his multiple elite level winner at home in NZ Sacred Star. The six-year-old raced in his third Stradbroke last start and ran a solid fifth as a $61 roughie. He has winning form at this distance, will be closing hard late and the Sunshine Coast track looks like it’ll suit.


#12 Irish Constabulary ($8.50)

Seymour-trained seven-year-old is the early market mover and could be outclassed, but deserves a shot based on the ultra-consistent lead-up form. The son of Flying Spur might be at the older end of the age scale, but he is very lightly raced having had just nine starts to date for four wins and two seconds. He comes off back-to-back sprint wins at Doomben, the latest on June 22 by 2.8 lengths in a Benchmark 25. Is up in class and distance, but gets in on 54kg and is every chance.
